Seismic Data Processing
by Steve Hill
Duration: Two days
Intended Audience: Entry and Intermediate levels
Prerequisites (Knowledge/Experience/Education Required): The course is designed for both geologists and geophysicists. Geophysical research scientists are also welcome, especially those who have not mastered this broad field. The course assumes no knowledge of seismic geophysics. The course makes use of numerous illustrations to provide intuition for the underlying (mostly hidden) mathematics.
This outline is almost the inverse of the order of the processing steps. Because each processing step has its own input requirements, understanding those requirements provides the motivation for understanding the each preceding processing step. Quantitative, mathematical procedures inherently comprise seismic processing. By contrast, this course uses cartoons and real data examples to provide an intuitive understanding of the seismic processing procedures.
Course participants will receive a course book that will contain the contents of all overheads, with the exception of examples shown from the Oz Yilmaz classic seismic processing text.
